Greg Drummond and band performing at the Harrison Memorial Hall

Greg Drummond, a Great way to close a Wonderful Season

Greg Drummond's performance ended the Harrison Festival Society's 2015-16 Season of the Performing Arts.

By Hunter Ramey

The month of April went out with a blast with the Greg Drummond band performance at the Harrison Memorial Hall last Saturday. The concert was also a great way to close the Harrison Festival Society’s 2015-16 Season of the Performing Arts, which featured a variety of musical genres.

Greg Drummond quit his job in sales to pursue a career in music. He noted that this choice was a “life changing experience,” but the choice appears to have been well worth it as an enthusiastic crowd welcomed him in Harrison. One of his most difficult hurdles involved convincing friends and family that he was making the right move in his career. At times, he even second-guessed himself, but kept going after he reminded himself that he was a musician for the love of it. He also found motivation to continue after receiving acclaim from various music industry outlets, and winning ten thousand dollars from a radio station contest.

The packed crowd in Harrison last Saturday, joined in with Greg Drummond’s song, “Stand,” towards the end of the performance. There were also fans joyfully dancing throughout the concert. Fans of Greg Drummond can expect possible tour dates for his album “Drive” in the near future. He is also working on writing songs for his third album.
